Following up their 1st ever World Series appearance and win, the Blue Jays added Hall-of-Famers Rickey Henderson and Paul Molitor and went 95-67 to clinch 1st place in the AL East. 1993 was the last year that there were only two playoff teams from each league, and Toronto would face the White Sox in the ALCS.
